Guest Speakers, Observations & Field Trips
Students are immersed in the profession of education through observations at local schools (charter, public & private) throughout Albuquerque, field trips to UNM and CNM education programs, City Center, and the Early Childhood offices, and through guest speaker visits from local teachers, professors, district personnel, administration & even PED to share their expertise and experiences in the field of education.
An 8 week internship at a local elementary or middle school is a required part of the course. Students work with master teachers at a chosen grade level. During the experience they are required to teach 2 standards based lessons & are observed and evaluated by the Teacher Cadet instructor and their cooperating teacher.
